Gender roles are the roles that women and men are expected to occupy based on their sex. When we look at our history, women’s gender roles circle around characteristics like passivity, helpfulness, and kindness. And hence traditionally, women are seen in the light of as nurturers, caregivers, helpers, and homemakers. On the other hand, men’s gender roles revolve mainly around characteristics such as strength, dominance, and assertiveness. And so traditionally, men’s gender roles include being a leader, breadwinner, and protector.
Times have changed since then and yet as a society we seem to adhere to the traditional gender roles which are outdated in today’s context. I spoke with 100 men and women in the last couple of months and the findings have been astounding. As much as I thought that it would be only women who would be affected by the rigidity of the gender roles, the reality was far different.
Sharing some insights with all of you to ponder and bring awareness.
The traditional gender roles also play an important role in the belief systems and how some beliefs are stored subconsciously since generations. I would be exploring these findings in the upcoming writings.
The intention of this write up is to bring the awareness on how traditional gender roles might have been affecting you and your career. In the light of these findings and exploring how has it personally affected you, you can start breaking the glass ceiling of these roles at your end.

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
